Dubuque, Iowa—Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, local installer Eagle Point Solar is proud to be named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine. Eagle Point Solar achieved a rank of 249 out of 500 solar companies.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets. The list was released on July 25.
“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”
The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, and Eagle Point Solar will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.
Eagle Point Solar employs 38 workers, who installed over 1.4MW of solar in 2016. Since its founding in 2010, the company has installed over 8MW of solar. Eagle Point Solar is committed to sales, installation and deployment of solar photovoltaic systems throughout the Midwest to produce emission-free energy throughout Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin for the purpose of reducing greenhouse gases and spurring job creation and domestic economic activity.
“We are proud to be included on this prestigious list of companies for four years in a row,” says Jim Pullen, General Manager. “Our dedication to growing the solar industry in the Midwest is unwavering.” He continues, “we appreciate the confidence our customers place in us and will continue to focus on providing them the greatest value for their money.”
